[SciPy-User] Problem importing weave

When I do

from scipy import weave

on my Mandriva 2009.1 (64-bit) installation, I get the error

DistutilsPlatformError: invalid Python installation: unable to open /usr/lib64/python2.6/config/Makefile (No such file or directory)

I can see that the config directory is indeed missing. I've installed both the numpy and numpy-devel packages, and numpy and scipy works without any problems except for that I cannot import weave.

Where should the config directory come from?
